Described by the New York Times as "the gold standard for office seating, " the Freedom Chair redefines the concept of traditional work chairs. The designer Niels Diffrient aimed to design a desk chair that automatically adapts to the user, allowing him to move freely from one posture to another. Diffrient's unique approach has eliminated the complexities inherent in other seats, such as heavy tilt levers and tension knobs for a truly ergonomic work chair. As a result, he has developed a tilting mechanism that perfectly adapts to the user, permanently reinventing the modern working seat so that it is really simple, functional and aesthetic.
With an innovative tilt offering constant support and a swiveling backrest that automatically adapts to the needs of the spine, the Freedom chair is exceptionally comfortable and promotes movement throughout the day. Its refined and sculpted cushions have been designed to mimic the natural contours of the body and reduce the occasional pressure loads for optimal comfort. Like all Humanscale chairs, the Freedom chair has been designed to look and function like new after years of constant use.
